How did you get started in the Hair industry?
Growing up I always loved doing hair. I would spend hours experimenting with my own hair to always wanting to do my friends hair. My grandma was also a stylist her whole life so my parents like to say it ran in the family. I finally went to hair school at 20 years old at the Tony and Guy Academy. After I completed school I started at my first commission salon called Habit Salon. I worked there for 4 years where I learned and experienced so much, to teaching classes and helping with celebrity hair. After those years I felt It was time to branch off so I rented a salon suite with my close friends. I currently still renting a suite with my best friend and my amazing clientele I’ve build over the years. I can’t believe it’s been about 9 amazing years in the industry and I’m excited to keep growing.
